Company / App Name: Schedule
What does it do?
Schedule is designed to be simple, fast and communicative. The app interface is lightweight with neat features to make the act of scheduling easy. It then sends out email reminders to resources and managers detailing their tasks.
Why do we need it?
We are a digital agency based in the UK and one of our biggest headaches is resource scheduling. We tried a few pieces of software out but we generally found them to be cumbersome to use, expensive or overly complex. So we built our own.
Who is it for?
As resourcing is a fairly widespread problem we do have a large target audience. However this app was built from within an agency so it most closely correlates with the resource managers at creative, marketing and technical agencies.
What makes it stand out from the crowd?
The speed in which you can get set up and start scheduling. The resourcing interface is extremely quick to use with no long forms or random pop-ups. The other key differentiator are the email notifications copying in project managers.
At the moment we are trying to build up our user base and our roadmap is really to respond to what our users really want from it. We are determined to keep it simple so we won’t add lots of features. We will focus on efficiency mostly.
